God is My Rock

2 Samuel 22-24

”My God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. He is my refuge, my savior, the one who saves me from violence. I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and He saved me from my enemies.“ 2 Samuel‬ ‭22‬:‭3‬-‭4‬ ‭NLT‬‬ David knew where his strength came from, and that made all the difference!

”But in my distress I cried out to the Lord. …He heard me from His sanctuary; my cry reached His ears.“ 2 Samuel‬ ‭22‬:‭7‬ ‭NLT‬‬ This is such a beautiful picture of God’s love for us. Our cries of desperation, the prayers from the deepest part of our hearts, reach His ears.

”To the faithful You show yourself faithful; to those with integrity You show integrity.“ 2 Samuel‬ ‭22‬:‭26‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I also really like this verse. It resonates at the core of who I am:

”But the king replied to Araunah, ‘No, I insist on buying it, for I will not present burnt offerings to the Lord my God that have cost me nothing.’ So David paid him fifty pieces of silver for the threshing floor and the oxen.“ 2 Samuel‬ ‭24‬:‭24‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Profound and meaningful concept to incorporate into one’s life.
